The Free Land of Unruliness is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.256 billion Unruly Ones live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The all-consuming Unruly economy, worth 504 trillion Barters a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 80,686 Barters, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 310,822 per year while the poor average 14,406, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Unruliness's national animal is the Flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Unruliness is ranked 173,020th in the world and 1,781st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.02 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
